OCR.space follows the principle of data avoidance and data economy ("Datensparsamkeit" in German): We only collect the minimum data we need to provide the OCR service, and only keep the data as long as we need to.
We also understand that some organizations can not allow the use of any cloud services at all. In this case we recommend our on-premise ocr server installation.
OCR API (Hosted solution, Cloud OCR)
All uploaded documents are deleted after processing. We do not keep any of your data.
OCR API On-Premise
The on-premise version of the OCR API never contacts the internet and all processing is done 100% on your machines.
We use Google Analytics and other 3rd party tools on our website. This data is not combined with the OCR data.
The OCR.space team headquarter is in Europe (Germany). The strict European data protection laws apply.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
OCR.space is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) EU Regulation. A signed GDPR data processing agreement is available for PRO PDF and Enterprise users at no additional cost. You can request it from tech support.
